• Ken Shamrock Explains Why He Could Never Defeat Famous UFC Legend In Their 3 Fights

Ken Shamrock & Tito Ortiz, now both UFC Hall of Famers, had 3 epic encounters that drew huge box office and pay-per-view money when they were fighting each other in the main events of the following PPVs:

UFC 40: Vendetta (November 22, 2002)

UFC 61: Bitter Rivals (July 8, 2006)

Ortiz vs. Shamrock 3: The Final Chapter (October 10, 2006)

‘The Huntington Beach Bad Boy’ Tito Ortiz won all three MMA fights against ‘The World’s Most Dangerous Man’ Ken Shamrock via technical knockout.

Under a recent Facebook post on Ken’s official Facebook page, a fan asked the former WWF Intercontinental Champion the following:

“Why couldn’t you beat Tito? I have watched you forever, what mentally stopped you from beating Tito Ortiz?”

Shamrock replied:

“39 years old 40 years old 41 years old 9 years before fighting Tito I captured the pancrase title & defended it several times, then captured the super fight belt & defended that for 2 years then went into pro wrestling spent 3 years there then cam back to fight Tito because the company was dying.

I was not in my prime & he was in his peak time & in my opinion the best fighter in the world at that time.”
